The IFP has hailed as an important
breakthrough a report which reveals that the KwaZulu-Natal ANC
government has only managed to build 33 schools since it took
over in 2004. This emerged in a reply from the Province’s
Department of Education which was responding to a question posed
by the IFP Member of the Legislature who is the party’s
Spokesperson on Education, Mntomuhle Khawula.
In his question, Khawula asked the MEC for
Education to indicate the number of schools in KwaZulu-Natal.
The response was that there are 6018 public schools. He then
asked how many of these were built as from 2004.
The answer was only 33.
Commenting on the Department’s answer, Khawula
“This reply by the Department of Education is
an important breakthrough for the IFP for it makes it clear
that, since the ANC took over government in 2004, it has managed
to build only 33 schools out of more than 6254 schools in
KwaZulu-Natal. The rest were, without any question, built by the
“This puts to rest the ANC propaganda through
which they have always presented themselves as the only
government that has delivered development to the people of
KwaZulu-Natal. Indeed the saying that “the truth will set you
free” has proved to be correct as it has set the IFP free from
the ANC propaganda.”
